I remain true

I wanted to write a fluff post celebrating the products I have brand loyalty to for good reason - so here it is! These are the goodies that I'll sometimes spend a little more on or purposely select over other brands because they're worth it.

Johnson & Johnson cotton buds because the cotton bit doesn't shred and come apart and the plastic bit doesn't bend like cheaper brands tend to.

The Body Shop Body Butter because it goes on all silky and lush, soaks right in and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy, but keeps moisturising for hours. It also smells delicious. I've tried Blueberry, Coconut, Shea, Mango, Passionfruit, Melon Seed and Grape Seed and I don't think I have a favourite.

Dettol Antibacterial Cleaning Wipes in Grapefruit because they smell nice, are soft but are tough on dirt and really do the job well. I've tried many other brands but this is by far my favourite (although Cif wipes would do as runner-up).

Bisto gravy granules because the gravy they make just tastes so good and is so easy to prepare. I don't think I've even tried other brands so maybe this isn't a fair judgement, but I'm happy to keep using them.

Tesco own-brand nappies because they are as good as the leading brands but are much cheaper.
Ronseal wood treatments because they do what they say.

Pritt glue stick because it actually stays stuck and is non-messy.

Canon cameras because I love my 20D.

Clinique skin products because my skin looks and feels good when I use them. I like the way the soap or face wash rinses off completely without leaving residue. (I get mine on eBay in smaller sizes to spread the cost.)

Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara because it goes on beautifully, comes off well when you want it to and doesn't smudge in between. And it looks good.

Yankee Candles (well, actually wax tarts) because they smell divine and really do fragrance the room well. I love that the wax tarts are inexpensive, are easy to burn and scent the room amazingly.

Cardini's Ranch Dressing with Italian Cheese because oh-my-gosh it is heavenly!! Absolutely to die for. Just the right blend of creaminess, flavour and tang.

Asda own-brand hot chocolate because it is so creamy and delicious.

Ghirardelli triple chocolate brownie mix from Costco because the level of pleasure these brownies will induce should be illegal.

Adobe Photoshop because it is simply the best image editing software available and absolutely rocks.

One and One for URL's and web hosting because their prices are excellent and the control panel is easy to navigate.

Ikea kitchens because they are so versatile, easy to plan, easy to install and the quality far exceeds similarly-priced products. The range is fantastic and they look really good and I love that you can order high wall units so you don't waste space above them. The wall units are also deep enough for plates, unlike some.
